Dorla Schlitt's Holiday Breakfast
(also known as Mom's Breakfast Casserole ... you'll
Like many families, from the time we were married and
began our own family we were expected to be "home" for
Christmas if we were within driving distance. It was
somewhat simpler than in some families in that our

allowing us to split our holiday time between
grandparents' homes and enjoying the company of our
brothers' families as well.
John and I would pack up all four children (their stuff
and ours), along with a "boat load" of Christmas
presents. Our longest trip was from Nashville to central
Illinois so we always headed out the driveway in the

One of our family's favorite Christmas morning dishes
was a breakfast casserole my Mom made every year. For
the last 12 years or so I have made the Christmas
breakfast casserole at our home and our grandchildren
are enjoying it now!
It's easy to prepare the night before, convenient to
bake on Christmas morning, and tastes awesome! Everyone
